  • Annes Grove Miniature Castle

    Now it’s not often you find a miniature castle for two, but that’s exactly what you get with this fabulous property in County Cork!

    This quirky property was originally built in the 19th century to impress visitors to Annesgrove House and Gardens and it really is everything you would expect from a castle only a little bit (OK quite a lot) smaller!

    A turret, battlements (they’re the raised sections at the top) and an arched stone gateway all add lots of character to this property and make for a really romantic getaway. I mean where else can you be King and Queen of the castle for a weekend.

    Inside there are lots of great features with arched doorways to walk, lead windows to look out and a winding stone staircase to walk up which leads to the master bedroom. Warm golds keep things nice and cosy in the sitting room and the wood-burning fire housed in an original stone fireplace is great for colder nights.

    Head through an arched doorway to the light and bright kitchen where you can rustle up something delicious for dinner before sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labour at the wooden dining table.

    Upstairs is the impressive master bedroom where you’ll find regal reds, wooden panelling and a medieval style chandelier. Well you are in a castle after all.

    When the weather is warmer, head outside to a private patio and make the most of your wonderful setting.
